台灣榮辱

美國於一九七九年制定了台灣關係法,承認台灣是一個國家,並正式終止確認中華民國。

中華民國於是甚至不配被稱為一個流亡政府,它根本啥都不是。

令人悲哀的是,台灣人民卻仍然堅決捍衛中華民國,把它視為自己的國家。有句俗話說「知己知彼、百戰百勝」。台灣人民現在甚至連自己是誰都搞不清楚,他們怎可能訴諸一戰呢?

還好,上蒼總是疼惜苦命人,透過現代科技,台灣人現在可以隨時上網查詢,探究台灣主權的真相。

今天在台灣的民主,可以讓您選舉總統和立法委員,這只能反映出基本的人權或人民主權,而不是法理民權或領土主權,那才是國際社會用來認定一個主權國家的依據。

二0一七年八月十九日,第二十九屆夏季世界大學運動會將於台北市舉行。在開幕式上,台灣隊將正式被標示為「中華台北」,在奧運旗下進場。奧運五環旗正如大家所知,那是歸難民運動員所使用。

感謝來自世界各地台灣人的關心和努力,我們現在已意識到自己所面臨的困境與麻煩。

自一五四二年以來,在葡萄牙水手發現台灣驚豔稱之為福爾摩沙美麗寶島後,已有四百七十五年,歷經荷蘭,西班牙,鄭成功,大清,日本和中華民國的統治,這些都是外來的政權。

我們要如何才能擺脫這些外力?這對所有台灣人來說,確實是一個很大的挑戰。

現在該是台灣人民,採取毅然決定的時候了。

就在二0一七年七月十二日,蔡英文政府外交部,正式宣布台灣不是中國的一部分。如果台灣人民要被世人看得起做個有尊嚴的人,那就必須站出來響應政府,向世人大聲宣布台灣不是中國的一部分。

一九六0年八月廿五日,台灣隊被命名為福爾摩薩,但當時的國民黨政府不爽,叫楊傳廣及其所有團隊人員,於一九六0年夏季羅馬奧運比賽開幕式時,在高舉「抗議中」的標誌下進場。

現在,該是所有台灣人,勇敢說出自己是誰的時候了。

八月十九日,台灣代表隊當高舉「抗議中」的標誌,走進那將在我們自己家園台北,所舉行第二十九屆夏季世大運開幕儀式,來抵制那令人無法接受的臭名「中華台北」,向世界宣誓台灣不叫中華台北,我們是屬於台灣的台灣人,而不是那屬於中國的中國人。

榮耀或屈辱:這就有賴於我們所採取的行動了。

Prideor insult?

The US promulgated the Taiwan RelationsAct in 1979. It recognized Taiwan as a nation and officially derecognized theRepublic of China (ROC).

The ROC then would not even qualifyas an exiled government. It is simply nothing.

What is sad, is that Taiwanese stilltry to defend the ROC as their national identity.

There is a saying: “Know your enemy,know yourself then you can truly fight.”

Taiwanese are not even able toidentify themselves. How can they fight?

Fortunately, through technologyTaiwanese can research on the Internet and learn about the true sovereignty ofTaiwan.

Today, democracy allows Taiwanese toelect a president and a legislature, but that only reflects the basic humanright called “popular sovereignty,” not civil rights or territorialsovereignty, which is needed to be recognized by the international community asa sovereign nation.

On Saturday next week, the 29thSummer Universiade Games will open in Taipei. At the opening ceremony, theTaiwanese team will be officially listed as “Chinese Taipei” and bear theOlympic flag as their own. The five-ring Olympic flag has historically beenused by refugee athletes.

Thanks to care and interest ofTaiwanese from around the world, we now realize that we have faced difficultyand trouble.

Since 1542, when Portuguese sailors discoveredTaiwan and called it Ilha Formosa, it has been occupied by the Dutch, Spanish,Koxinga (Cheng Cheng-kung, 鄭成功), the QingDynasty, the Japanese and the ROC for more than 475 years.

How do we get rid of these foreignforces? This is indeed a big challenge for all Taiwanese.

It is time for Taiwanese to maketheir own decision.

Only on July 12 did the Ministry ofForeign Affairs declare that Taiwan is not a part of China. If Taiwanese wantto be recognized as a dignified people, they must stand up to echo thegovernment and announce to the world that Taiwan is not part of China.

On Aug. 25, 1960, the Taiwanese Olympicteam was named “Formosa,” but Yang Chuan-kwang (楊傳廣) and his teammates marched into the 1960 Summer OlympicsGame opening ceremony in Rome behind a sign reading “Under Protest.”

Now it is time for all Taiwanese tovoice who they are.

On Saturday next week, the Taiwaneseteam must also carry an “Under Protest” sign against the unacceptable name“Chinese Taipei” into the opening ceremony of the Universiade, to signify tothe world that Taiwan is not Chinese Taipei and we are Taiwanese of Taiwan, notChinese of China.

Pride or insult: It will depend on ouractions.
